Founded in 2004, Ground Breakers has planted almost 10,000 native trees and shrubs in every corner of Oakville. Working with residents' associations, the Rotary Club, faith groups, Boy Scouts and Girl Guides, high school students, historical societies, horticultural societies and many other community groups, these plantings have attracted a large number of Oakville citizens.
Ground Breakers works in partnership with the Town of Oakville and Evergreen Canada and is grateful to the funding of trees it has received from Home Depot, TD Friends of the Environment, Walmart, the Community Foundation of Oakville, Boston Pizza and other organizations.
Ground Breakers has re-naturalized areas, beautified neighbourhoods and filled parks with trees. Ground Breakers selects sites for tree plantings, coordinates volunteers, provides guidance to do the planting and supplies everything volunteers need.
If you would like to spend two hours helping plant trees with Ground Breakers please contact Jen McPherson
